A Recipe using Peppermint Tea
      03/10/05 09:56 PM

This is my very first post on the site....I was checking the Celestial Seasonings Website out and came across this one, looks safe but I think based on the examples I would change the yogurt to soy yogurt...(am I right? I am a newbee)

Peppermint Cucumber Salad

Yogurt, mint, and cucumbers are to Middle Eastern cooking what ranch dressing is to American. To enjoy chilled cucumber soup in the summer, first remove the seeds from the cucumbers. Then prepare the salad. Finally, purée the salad in the blender. Chill and serve in tea cups.

2 Peppermint tea bags
1/2 cup white vinegar
1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 cup low-fat or nonfat yogurt
2 large cucumbers, peeled and sliced

Steep the tea bags in the vinegar for 20 minutes. Remove and discard the tea bags. Add the sugar and yogurt. Mix well. Pour the mixture over the sliced cucumbers. Toss and chill for 10 minutes.

Serves: 4
Preparation Time: 30 minutes
Chill Time: 10 minutes
